Don't let anyone fool you about Carlsbad. Unless you can afford to put your kids in La Costa Canyon area, the schools have a lot of kids that are trouble there. I have a friend who has raised up 3 kids there. All three of them have problems and hated school.
La Costa Canyon is nice, but too sheltered for my taste, not to mention expensive.
May family and I moved to Oceanside about 8 years ago and we too were very concerned about finding "Good" schools for them to attend. My daughters have/are attending both Empressa Elementary and Roosevelt Middle School. For high school they will attend Mission Vista where my wife has worked since it was opened. You can also go to http://www.greatschools.org and check out each of the schools for a better understanding of each.
I've worked for Remax United for 13 yrs and know the North County Coastal Communities very well and would love to assist you in finding the perfect home. Please feel free to call me and discuss any questions you may have and what you are looking for in a home for your family.
Have a great afternoon!
There are several excellent schools in Oceanside. Check out http://www.greatschools.org - they have ratings on each school and are very helpful. Per this site, the highest rated school in Oceanside is Ivey Ranch. My child goes to Nichols Elementary School which we also like a lot. Some other great schools include Palmquist and Christa McAuliffe. These are all in the Oceanside School District. As far as Vista USD, Empresa is very nice and Alamosa Park. Then there are newer homes (the Arrowood area) that are in Bonsall West. (also a great district)
I have lived in Oceanside since I was three and no one knows it better. I am the top recommended broker on Trulia in Oceanside and would love to bring my knowledge and experience in the area to you.

My kids attend Alamosa Park Elementary which is considered one of the best schools in all of Oceanside. The Bonsall West School District in Arrowood is another area that many people consider as a great area. I would be happy to give you more information and can direct you to a few links for you to do more research on this topic. Please feel free to call or email me. Thank you.
